Classic combination of the Gascogne Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes. Fruit driven and refreshing.
Producteurs Plaimont (established 1979) is a forward-thinking co-op, actually a grouping of five co-ops, based in the town of St-Mont about 50 km north of Pau in SW France. This ultra-reliable winery, which has an admirable focus on polishing the finer characters of the region's local grapes, consistently produces wines of character and charm across a huge range of styles and prices.
Tasting Note: - an old favourite from Gascogne, classic Colombard and Ugni Blanc blend. Fruit driven, light and eminently quaffable. Pure pleasure, and reminds us of long summers in Gascony. Bliss.
